Have you ever looked on sites like TikTok or Pinterest at bright and colourful homes and said to yourself, “Why can’t I have this?” everyone has been there? What about those fresh and clean homes, too? We’ve all seen those influencer homes or those questionably rich people and their fancy interiors and wished we could have the same. You’ve probably seen some photos and videos with fancy furniture, or the space planning itself just makes it apparent that an actual interior designer was involved in the process.
The same can be said for those who hired an architect to build a house for them. They get to have all of these amazing quirks and features that a standard home almost always lacks. As you’ve probably already guessed, if you’re letting the professionals work on your home, then it’s going to be super social-media friendly.
But with that said, you don’t need to be rich, and you don’t need to be an influencer; some of these folks probably got popular on social media because they curated the look of their home over time. In general, anyone can do it, and yes, it’s going to take some time. But how can you do it? How can you make an Instagrammable space, a social-media-perfect home that you’ll forever swoon for? Well, here’s what you need to know!
It’s All Going to Start By Defining Your Aesthetic
Before embarking on your social media home transformation, take the time to define your aesthetic. Whether it’s boho-chic, minimalist, vintage, or eclectic, having a clear vision will guide your design choices. In general, consistency in style creates a visually appealing feed that followers will love to scroll through.
What’s Your Purpose?
Do you want your home to look better for the sake of it looking better, or do you want it to look better so you can make social media posts of your home? There is a huge difference. It’s like the equivalent of clothes: wearing clothes for social media versus wearing clothes for yourself. So, you need to think about the purpose. Your home needs to reflect you; it needs to make you feel comfortable. If it’s not, then you need to evaluate all of this.
Let There Be Light
While you’re still questioning the purpose of your space, you’ll never fail by adding more natural light into your home. It looks better; you’re going to feel way better, too. Plus, if you’re focusing on social media purposes, then you should know that natural light is a game-changer in photography. Arrange furniture to maximize the flow of natural light, use sheer curtains, and strategically place mirrors to reflect and amplify sunlight. Well-lit spaces not only look better on camera but also create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
Needs To Be Tidy
Online, you almost never see dirty or messy spaces; it’s almost as if they are unheard of. So, whether it’s social media or not, you’re just going to feel better altogether if you just go ahead and maintain a clutter-free environment to showcase your home’s beauty. A tidy space not only photographs well but also creates a sense of order and calm. Consider stylish storage solutions to keep belongings organized and out of sight.
